While stuck at a wedding in Palm Springs, Nyles (Andy Samberg) meets Sarah (Cristin Milioti), the maid of honor and family black sheep. After he rescues her from a disastrous toast, Sarah becomes drawn to Nyles and his offbeat nihilism. But when their impromptu tryst is thwarted by a surreal interruption, Sarah must join Nyles in embracing the idea that nothing really matters, and they begin wreaking spirited havoc on the wedding celebration.
It's a fictional beer that Nyles offers Sarah poolside, and Andy Samberg hopes that a real brewer will step forward to manufacture it. "Just know that it's not a super dense IPA, it's gotta be like a really light, watery, summertime beer that you want ice cold." See more »
When Sarah wakes up Nyles is already in the pool with his friend Jerry, which makes it impossible for Sarah to sneak out to study when Nyles tries to find her every morning. However, Nyles could never find her because she never woke up in her own room, and it would be easy to sneak out undetected without going by the pool. See more »
I can survive just fine without you, you know. But there-there's a chance that this life can be a little less mundane with you in it.

I'm 65 years old and generally a prude when it comes to sex and violence. But this was a charmingly-delightful experience into a clever time-loop snafu, so I got over the cartoon sex and cartoon violence.
Andy Samberg captures some of Bill Murray's frustration in Groundhog Day but then makes it charmingly his own. Andy is exhausted but then added into the mix is the captivating Cristin Milioti. And then things just take off in a bizarre way.
The bar dance was mesmerizing and hilarious. Bonus points for the great J.K Simmons who stole every scene he was in. Bonus points for the amazing chemistry of Samberg and Milioti.
I'll let the rest of the reviewers discuss direction, set design, editing, and cinematography - but all were perfect.
In a normal year, this film would've garnered many academy award nominations. Maybe Best Picture would've gone to such a unique comedy. Who knows how the 2020 AA will shake out but this movie is just charming and delightful. Watch and enjoy! It's laugh-out-loud fun and just so sweet.
